Interesting — we’re not expecting anything that’s even watchable, but Kaiju fans are curious to learn that a legendary un-see-able giant monster picture may be on its way to home video. Gary Teetzel turns our attention to the Scifi Japan website, for Avery Guerra’s short article  SRS Cinema Acquires North American Rights to Long Lost Korean Monster Movie.

The movie is called “Space Monster Wangmagwi”, it’s from 1967, and it’s described as ‘the Golden Fleece of obscure unreleased Kaiju films.’ Who knows, what if we find out it’s an unauthorized remake of Citizen Kane?



Since we just got finished reading Charlie Largent’s review of the Disney classic Darby O’Gill and the Little People, I don’t mind forwarding this found-on-the-web quality comparison of the new widescreen disc and a 2004 HD Master, that’s flat (and apparently not on disc).

If it’s accurate, it’s quite an eye-opener:  Darby O’Gill HD Video Comparison.
